Many soon to be parents will have the question “We are planning to breastfeed our baby, do we still need baby bottles?” The answer to this question is “Yes you do need”. There are two main reasons for getting the best bottles for newborns to satisfy his/her hunger; the first one is, bottles can be used to feed your baby with your pumped breast milk. Emptying your breasts frequently will lead to increased milk formation that will keep your mammary glands healthy. As you can’t ask your baby to finish all your breast milk, it is better to get your breast milk pumped and later feed your baby through a bottle. This practice will be of great help if the mother could not be around the baby due to some work.
The second reason is that some babies may be born with certain nutritious deficiency and they will have to be ingested with a certain formula that will balance the deficiency. This formula will mostly be some other form of milk or powder that can be mixed in water and fed to the baby through a bottle.
Dr. Brown’s newborn feeding set is one of the best bottles for newborns out there in the market. The company excels in manufacturing baby products and is one of the most reliable firms in the industry.
The feeding set consists of 3 240 ml sized bottles, 2 120ml sized bottles, 2 silicone nipples, 2 storage caps, and 3 nipple brushes. The product gets attached to most of the breast milk pumps that make the pumping procedure easy.
The natural flow bottles are BPA free and the nipples enable the babies to drink milk at their preferred speed. The bottles do not encourage air bubbles and keep the baby away from spit-up, burping and most importantly colic. The vent system does not allow air to mix up with the milk thus preserving the essential vitamins and nutrients.
The Philips Avent baby bottles are mainly designed to keep the baby away from colic. The bottle set contains 3 anti-colic feeding bottles (9 ounce), 3 caps, and 3 slow-flow nipples. The product claims itself to be clinically proven to produce relief from colic.

It is also heat resistant and can be sterilized by immersing in boiling water. The rating for this product is also quite high like the other two products mentioned above and can definitely be given a go.
These are one of the most beautifully designed baby bottles one can opt for to bottle feed their babies. The breast like nipple will help your baby feel their mother’s nipple and will help them feed in peace.
The anti-colic valve near the nipple will control the excessive flow of air and feed the baby with more milk and less air. The wide neck area, allows the bottles to be cleaned easily through hands and the milk flow rate can be adjusted from slow, medium to fast.
